This program is ideal for clinicians who want the flexibility to select a combination of units and specialisations that will meet their professional development needs. It offers flexibility with distance delivery, block attendance, external study and online learning for selected units.
The Health Services Management study area in the graduate certificate, graduate diploma and masters program is accredited with the Australasian College of Health Service Management.
The graduate certificate articulates into the Graduate Diploma in Health Science.
Students in the Graduate Certificate in Health Science can select to complete four units from one study area or from across a range of Faculty of Health units. To complete a major, students must complete at least four units from the same study area within the Faculty of Health. Students can graduate with one specified major only.
Study areas are offered in the following:
- Aged Care
- Emergency and Disaster Management
- Environmental Health*
- Health Promotion
- Health Services Management
- Occupational Health and Safety*
- Quality and Patient Safety (Graduate Certificate only)
- Risk Management
- Women’s Health, or
- a cross-specialisation (where no study area is taken but students study across a variety of fields).
* Students wishing to complete a graduate diploma qualification in Environmental Health or Occupational Health and Safety should apply for entry into the Graduate Diploma in Environmental Health or Graduate Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety and not the Graduate Diploma in Health Science.
Applicants for the Graduate Certificate in Health Science must have a bachelor degree in a relevant area (or equivalent).
Applicants may be admitted on the basis of work experience, other qualifications or research activities at the discretion of the Executive Dean.
